In the arms of a centuries-old vampire, a woman awakens to newfound passion–and magical powers of her own.
Hungarian vampires are born, not made–and can breed with mortal females. Being one of the oldest of his kind, Quill Falconer has honed his skills at hunting just the right kind of prey, which is why his latest victim confounds him. She shouldn’t remember his drinking her blood. And he shouldn’t still be craving more . . .
Callie Hathaway’s life is as normal as it can be after the death of the beloved grandmother who raised her. Until one night, feeling foggy and fatigued, she realizes that a strangely sensual encounter with a dark, handsome man didn’t occur only in her imagination.
As Callie and Quill’s unique connection draws them together, an ancient order of knights seeks Quill’s destruction. Being together puts Callie in mortal danger–until she uncovers a magical family legacy. Side by side they’ll fight for survival, and for each other, as the brotherhood of vampire hunters gather for one final showdown.

My Rating: 3.5 stars
‘Enchant the Night‘ brings us the story of a Hungarian vampire, born never made and who could mate/have children with human women. Although Quill has lived a very long time he hasn’t found what some would consider a soulmate – until he encounters a woman who keeps the memory of his feeding on her blood despite his best efforts to wipe that fact from her mind. Callie is unique in that she has her own magic, yet dormant, and comes from a line of witches that she had thought was just a silly family rumor. No, Callie is a witch and she’s about to get an education in not only her own history and abilities but that of vampires and vampire hunters as well.
Most of what you’d want to know can be found in the Cover Description. I am torn on ‘Enchant the Night‘ for there were parts that I greatly enjoyed, and others that felt bland or even uncomfortable, and not what I usually find in this author’s work. In order to explain why I feel this way I’d have to give away spoilers – and that I do not willingly do. This is going to be a review where I’ll tell you frankly that you need to make up your own mind about this book. I’m giving it a 3.5-star rating on my blog and will round that up to 4-stars on the places I leave reviews. It’s a good book simply one where I couldn’t connect with the characters and there were factors in the hero’s past that I couldn’t feel comfortable with given that Callie is supposed to be his soulmate. Again, this is my opinion, you should make up your own mind.
